Fire Alarm FAQ
Here are a couple of fact you should know about your fire alarm system
How often must I change out my Smoke detectors?
The Can/ULC S536 Standata explains that all conventional Smoke detectors that are part of a Fire alarm system, as well as Smoke Alarms located in residential living areas must be replaced every 10 years.
How do I know if my fire alarm system requires monitoring?
The Alberta Building Code explains ULC-rated fire alarm monitoring is required for buildings with an occupant load of more than 300 people, if the system has any water flow-indicating devices, or if a 2-stage system is required in patient care facilities.
When do I need my fire alarm system inspected?
Your fire alarm system must be inspected annually buy a certified fire alarm technician. A yearly fire drill should be conducted to reinforce proper evacuation procedures and communication to the fire department. Monthly tests must be conducted by building maintenance personnel by running the system on battery power and initiating one device to proof functionality. A daily visual inspection of the system must be done to ensure the panel is powered and no trouble indicators are lit.
Here are a few of the questions that we get asked on a regular basis.
Why are the lights in my home flickering?
This may just be the light bulb. Check that the light bulb is properly screwed in and if there is no diﬀerence, then replace the bulb. Is it still flickering? This is an indication that there is a loose wire, which should be handled as soon as possible. If you can, try to not use the light until the electrician arrives as loose wires can lead to fires and/or personal injury.
How do I reset a breaker?
When looking at your electrical panel, there should be one switch that is not aligned with the others. If you look closely, it should show that it is in the oﬀ position. To turn the breaker back on, you will need to push the breaker towards the oﬀ position first and then turn it back towards the on position. The breaker should click back into alignment with the rest others.
